Also, I really like Jerry singing and playing Comes A Time.

Although in the DON'T like post a few individuals made comments about not liking some of the lyrics, to me, Hunter is one of the greatest lyric writers ever. Gotta love those bits of free advice:

"you've got an empty cup only love can fill"
"there's nothing you can hold for very long"
"there are things you can replace and others you cannot / the time has come to weight those things, this space is getting hot"
"lovers come and go, the river roll roll roll"
"the cards ain't worth a dime if you don't lay em down"
"once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you're lookin at it right"
"gonna make it? i dont know. get down and row, row row."
"if all you got to live for is what you left behind, get yourself a powder charge and seal that silver mine"

all of New Speedway Boogie

here's one I like from Barlow:
"the plowman is broad as the back of the land he is sowing / knows that work of his day is worth more than the planting and growing"
